standard molds
Aromas   3.2 / 5
waxed
Textures/Melt   5.8 / 10
Shells: medium-gauge

Classic pump & dump
Selections
Couverture: Belcolade; Callebaut
Collection
Rum Coconut – pirated from a shipwreck off the coast of FLA
Blackberry Cinnamon Apple – ash cake
Banana Caramel – amusement park give-away
Pear Williams – waste of cacáo (if that’s what Callebaut is)
Maple Pecan – maybe Jacques Chirac was right: British agricultural suicide
Cocoa Rouge – bravo, but by any other standard merely passable
Espresso – finally... even if loud & viscous
Milk Fragola – considered a signature piece & would be except where’s the chocolate; fresh strawberries are better & easier to make

Sugar-Free Line – best part of the shop
Hazelnut Milk – narrow; greaseless slick paradox; bland
Vanilla Dark – foamy vanilla-fill shaving cream; mall material
Dark Truffle – decent, smoky rim

Corporate Options – jelly goo
